in thread magic-diamond <> behavior -- WHAT?!

p5p-the-list can endlessly debate issues like this, but don't mistake that for decision, justification, or anything like that. When it comes down to it, someone may produce a patch, and the blead pumpking may apply it. No one else matters except Larry.

I have taken advantage of the misfeature, and probably will again, but would be happy to have it not be the default...except for one issue which was raised in the p5p noise: I think - should continue to indicate stdin. And once you have that one exception, you've already lost the battle for a "safe" *.
